Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others?
Of course you do. You’re human!
The problem is, the minute you start comparing yourself all sorts of stories take hold, stories that elevate the other person’s greatness and stories that, more-often-than-not, are damaging to you know who. Before you know it, you’ve convinced yourself that you’re not smart enough, knowledgeable enough, creative enough, thin enough – enough! – to do this thing that you want to do.
It’s said (by Suzy Kassem) that “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will,” and comparison is the food that self-doubt devours.
Your dreams and your vision, belong to you.
BUT as soon as you start comparing yourself, you rob yourself of both your vision, and your worth.
The flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. IT JUST BLOOMS.
— Zen Shin
